Narcissism and devaluing others: An exploration of impaired control over drinking as a mediating mechanism of alcohol-related problems
We examined a path model of 759 university student drinkers. Our results show that while grandiose-fantasy (i.e., desire for special recognition) was negatively linked to IC, devaluing was positively linked to IC. In addition, men scored higher on exploitativeness (i.e., interpersonally manipulative for personal gain) than women. We conducted mediational analysis with asymmetric confidence intervals and a bias-corrected bootstrap technique. Mediational tests showed that higher levels of grandiose-fantasy were indirectly related to fewer alcohol-related problems through less IC and less heavy-episodic drinking. In contrast,...

Helping to break news of cancer and the coordination of care represented approximately 20 and 80% of the working time of the nurse, respectively. The nurse spent 43% of her time without the doctor and more than half of this duration was dedicated to meetings ...
